I’m back to see Kim and the Created one more time, because I didn’t get enough at Deserted at the Palms!!  I think it’s my fifth time seeing this band and it gets better and better with each performance. Another reason to see this band again was because this was their homecoming gig, ending their National Tour and I heard that It will be crazy!! And I got what I wanted, it was Raw! Raw Power! Beer shower included!

“White Soul Brother” is what they called him. Bert Berns wrote and produced “Twist and Shout” for the Isley Brothers that was later covered by The Beatles. It was their biggest hit. He did 50 more. And the “they” mentioned in the first sentence is a Christmas list of rock legends.

JULYFEST 2016

JULYFEST 2016
Nambucca, London
Live review and photography: Svenja Block

An intimate festival featuring 6 bands, all fronted by fierce, powerful women owning the stage at North London’s famous Holloway Road! These wonderful performers should all be part of the big outdoors summer festivals around the UK and beyond. Maybe Nambucca will be able to negotiate with promoters and set up a stage tent at some point in the not so distant future.

Frank Zappa “Eat That Question”

Always a Freak, Never a Hippie: What I got out of the Frank Zappa Documentary “Eat That Question”
Written by PawL BaziLe

Punk Rock Homework Assign: Watch this film.  Yes, it’s that good, in fact, it’s a masterpiece and agree or disagree with Zappa’s points of view, he made them clear and this film demonstrates how it did it.

Aging gracefully for Rockers means water bottles litter stages instead of beer cans, wives hang out, not groupies and baby sitters have replaced cocaine dealers as the most important number in your phone. Aging gracefully for rock journalists means turning off the Memorial Day movie marathon and go out to the club for a sure bet to see one of the best shows of the year. Hell, I’ve seen “Kelly’s Heroes” about as many times as I’ve seen Blackboard Jungle. Anyway, Spoiler Alert: Germany loses.
